The man does not believe in mayonnaise but that is his only fault as far as I can tell. ; - ) I'll bring food for the PPP on the 27th.
D-Max of 2.21 / 2.22
On Bergger enlarging paper using Ansco 130 (slightly modified) paper developer I have been getting a D-Max of 2.21 / 2.22 (my Macbeth kept on fluttering between the two numbers).
To learn how to get the max out of your negatives and paper sign up for my Master Darkroom Workshop! If you sign up before year's end you will get your workshop at this years fee even if your Darkroom Workshop takes place several months from now in 2009.
For those of you that shoot 6X6 you will be able to try my machine vision macro iris super high res. Apo enlarging lens!
The rest of you will have to do with 300mm and 150mm El Nikkors, 240mm Apo Nikkor and 240mm Rodenstock enlarging lenses on professional Durst enlargers...

I've just attended one of Per's print workshops.Was amazed of how simple and fun it was.I brought a neg. I have been banging my head agianst the wall trying to get a decent print from,and with in a short time Per reveled to me the methods to achieve a very beautiful print.Explaining and answering any questions I had very patiently. I marveled at not only the printing techniques but also the developing techniques. From there we covered also bleaching,cropping composition,and was allways willing to talk cameras,tripods anything to do with photography. A most enjoyable and learning day. Thanks Per.
I took a one day darkroom workshop with Per in March. That has been my only formal instruction. I took about a dozen 4x5 negs of which he selected 4 to print through toning and bleaching. I thought it was great and very worthwhile. It is a great bargain also. If I am back in the LA area again I will make a point to do it again with some 8x10 negatives. Per is very laid back and a master in the darkroom. Highly recommended.
